So, I am a big fan of Walter Mosley and in my eyes he can do no wrong. Maybe I am biased but still this book had me all in. Who wouldn’t love this story of a famous porn star who finds her world shaken apart when her husband dies.
Sandra Peel, known in the video porn industry as Debbie Dare, is now a widow. Her husband Theon, was electrocuted in the bathtub while having sex with another woman. Sandra soon finds out that Theon owes some very nasty people a lot of money and these people want Sandra to pay up.
Sandra decides that now is the time to make some life changes, like reuniting with her son and getting out of the porn business. You know early on in this story that Sandra’s journey will not be easy, but Sandra handles herself with street smarts, intelligence and the help of a few unexpected friends.
This is a great book to add a little excitement on those cold fall and winter evenings. The language and some scenes might be a little explicit for some but it doesn’t take away from this well-written story of a woman determined to re-invent herself.
